IdBeCrazyIf: Christopher Dawson, a 22-year-old, is a registered sex offender prohibited from speaking to anyone under the age of 18. When he was 19, he had what he says is a consensual sexual relationship with a 14-year-old. He believed she was older.This is pretty much bullshiat. Get the kid off the registry and let him lead a normal life for he did nothing that not a single one of us wouldn't do. I mean seriously who the fark thinks about carding people before sex?
hard h2o: PunGent: hard h2o: I have a 14yo daughter. If some 18 or 19 yo dude came sniffing around I would not allow it.That guy is not just someone drunk caught pissing in an alley with an indecent exposure conviction. He is not an 18yo with a 17yo gf. He belongs on that registry.My sympathies, trying to raise a kid, but ten bucks says you'll be the LAST to know when she's dating.You are probably right. She is a straight A student. Very smart but a bit sneaky. She knows how I feel about dating at too early of an age. She knows how I feel about academics coming first.If some predator did anything to my girl or my young son i fear what I might do. They would not need to bother with the sex offender list. No ITG here. I have just read enough stories about what these predators do to get me really riled up.
hard h2o: I know that girls these days look older than their years but if you can't tell that a girl is 14 then you need to be branded a pedophile. I would guess he knew something was fishy but didn't want to ask and ruin a good thing. I would give him 16 or 17 but not 14.He "knew her for a year and dated her for a few months" how do things like schools and friends not come up?
hard h2o: h8sloplay: Agree that the vast majority of sex offenders on the list don't need to be there. We waste milions of dollars managing this list. Even Adam Walsh, who was the main push behind it, says it has gotten out of control. I would rather take that money and only monitor the true risks and worry about the criminals that rob, steal and go through the revolving door of our jails only to commit more crimes. How about let's spend the money on mental health issues. Problem is that no politician will vote to modify the registry for fear that they would be deemed soft on the issue and it would be used against them come re-election. First thing a freshman senator or representative is told to do is introduce a bill against sex offenders. Everyone will vote for it and it teaches them how the process works. This doesn't even cover the big money that tether companies line the pockets of the politicians with to get these laws passed.We are out of control as a country and big money has taken the driver's seat.If they are in the federal prison system then I imagine that they did something much worse than flash some jogger.
